"apple has helped the fbi and in this investigation and in every

to draw the line at recreating code, changing its iphone, putting its engineers and creative talents to destroy the iphone as it exists." a federal magistrate judge ordered apple to help the f-b-i hack into the password- protected phone. apple is fighting the judge's order... saying while it is technically possible to unlock the phone, the company believes it is "too dangerous to do."### families sandy hook shooting victims are filing a lawsuit against gun-maker remington. twenty children and six educators were killed when adam lanza unloaded 154 rounds from an a-r-15 semiautomatic in newtown, connecticut. the families of nine victims are joined in the lawsuit by a teacher who survived the attack. they say it's about

caucus site---that's because he can't decide between marco rubio or ted cruz. matt weber: undecided correct yea, matt weber is a local software engineer here in reno. he comes from a political family, so going to the caucuses wasn't even a question. what is a question, to whom will he throw his support? matt weber/21-year-old: i like him because i like his stance on gun control, you know keeping the second amendment rights, keeping them free. i like him because he has a similar stance. it is more the lesser of two evils for me because i'm not a huge fan of bernie sanders.. unlike the democratic caucuses caucuses are straw polls. registered republicans can stop by their caucus location, sign in and select their preference, and go home. they can stay however, and listen to their friends and neighbors about why they prefer one candidate over another. because he is undecided, matt hear the most compelling arguements for both ted cruz, and marco rubio. weber: the price of health care
